Happy Friday!

Isn't girl scout season right around the corner?
Have you seen my coconut-caramel shortbread bars?
They are the child of a samoa cookie + twix bar.

Have you done a savory pie yet?
A little hand pie is quite easy.  Come see how with my raspberry-cheddar hand pies.
Trust me when I say I did not make perfect little squares--who cares if they're crooked; it's rustic.

Scones are the best vehicle for holding multiple flavors and textures aren't they?
My strawberry-white chocolate cream scones are one of my favorite ways to use up rotting berries, eat warm butter on scones.

Smoked gouda & walnut crackers--if you're into savory, cheesy, buttery rich crackers.
Easy to make for the superbowl!
